  • Royals' Anthony Misiewicz: Designated for assignment

    Misiewicz was designated for assignment by the Royals on Friday.

    The club needed to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for the re-signing of Zack Greinke. Misiewicz pitched pretty well for Kansas City down the stretch last season after being acquired via trade from the Mariners, posting a 4.11 ERA and 19:4 K:BB over 15.1 innings. It's the second time since July that the left-hander has been designated for assignment.

  • Royals' Ryan Goins: Headed back to Kansas City

    Goins signed a minor-league contract with the Royals on Tuesday.

    It's something of a homecoming for Goins, who played for the Royals in 2018. Goins has spent the last two seasons at Triple-A Gwinnett in the Braves organization and is likely headed to Triple-A Omaha to start 2023. The veteran infielder will turn 35 in a couple weeks.

  • Royals' Zack Greinke: Back with Kansas City

    Greinke agreed Monday with the Royals on a one-year contract, Bob Fescoe of 610 Sports Kansas City reports.

    The deal will pay him $8-to-10 million with the chance for more with performance incentives, according to Mark Feinsand of MLB.com. Greinke returns to the Royals after a 2022 season in which he went 4-9 with a 3.68 ERA and 73:27 K:BB over 137 innings in 26 starts. The 39-year-old right-hander will assuredly be a part of the Kansas City rotation, but his inability to miss bats at this stage of his career renders him little more than a risky streaming option for the 2023 campaign in the majority of fantasy formats.

  • Royals' Matt Duffy: Receives contract from Royals

    Duffy signed a minor-league contract with the Royals on Friday.

    The veteran infielder will be given an invitation to major-league spring training. It's a good landing spot for Duffy, as the Royals recently freed up some playing time in the infield when they traded Adalberto Mondesi. Duffy was solid for the Cubs in 2021 but struggled last season with the Angels, putting up a .619 OPS across 247 plate appearances.

  • Royals' Jose Briceno: Re-ups with Kansas City

    Briceno re-signed with the Royals on a minor-league contract Wednesday.

    Briceno spent all of the 2022 campaign at Triple-A Omaha, putting up a .702 OPS with four homers across 141 plate appearances. Barring a major surprise, he'll be heading back to Omaha again to start 2023.

  • Royals' Josh Taylor: Sent to Royals

    Taylor (back) was traded from Boston to Kansas City on Monday in exchange for Adalberto Mondesi and a player to be named later, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

    Taylor owns a 3.69 ERA and a 29.4 percent strikeout rate in 102.1 career innings of relief. The lefty missed all of last season while dealing with back issues, with two separate rehab stints getting paused due to setbacks, but the Royals evidently felt confident enough in his health to acquire him. If he's fully healthy this year, he could be a useful weapon for his new team, though he's unlikely to see many save chances.

  • Royals' Steven Cruz: Headed to Kansas City

    Cruz and Evan Sisk were traded from the Twins to the Royals on Monday in exchange for Michael Taylor, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

    Cruz spent the entire 2022 campaign at Double-A Wichita and posted a 5.14 ERA, 72:35 K:BB and 1.59 WHIP in 56 innings over 46 relief appearances. While he had a decent strikeout rate, he'll likely begin the 2023 season at Double-A Northwest Arkansas or Triple-A Omaha.

  • Royals' Evan Sisk: Dealt to Kansas City

    Sisk and Steven Cruz were traded from the Twins to the Royals on Monday in exchange for Michael Taylor, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

    Sisk advanced to Triple-A St. Paul last season, and he'll likely be in the mix to make his major-league debut at some point in 2023 after a strong showing in the minors last year. He made 50 relief appearances between the Double-A and Triple-A clubs and posted a 1.57 ERA, 76:29 K:BB and 1.02 WHIP in 63 innings.

  • Royals' Johan Camargo: Joins Royals on minor-league deal

    Camargo signed a minor-league deal with the Royals on Saturday.

    Camargo struggled to a .237/.297/.316 slash line in 52 games for the Phillies last season, though his 74 wRC+ represented his best mark since 2018. His defensive versatility theoretically makes him a good fit for a bench spot, but he might wind up stuck in the minors waiting for an opportunity.

  • Royals' Aroldis Chapman: Set to sign with Royals

    Chapman agreed to a one-year, $3.75 million contract with the Royals on Thursday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

    He'll have an opportunity to earn more in incentives. Chapman is coming off a disappointing season which saw him put up a 4.46 ERA with just nine saves for the Yankees, but it's possible he'll get another chance to close for the Royals. Scott Barlow should remain Kansas City's closer to open 2023 after he posted a 2.18 ERA last season, but Chapman could push for the job with a strong start to the campaign.
